The BeginningsHello, my name is Mike, the founder of Freedom. It all began when Google was still in nappies, the internet was reserved for the likes of NASA and mobile phones were more brick-like than smart. The year 1996, my light-bulb moment came in the pub (or was it the shower) when planning my friends stag do, it was like herding cats. My mission was to make life easy for group organisers, travelling around the UK and Europe negotiating party deals. Now 21 years on, how lucky I am doing what I love with a team of 15 party gurus.
Behind the scenes you’ll find a relaxed and informal office, if we're not talking with customers on the phone, chasing the hottest accommodation deals you’ll find us having a sing-song / bickering over the album on play, or engaging in 'aircon wars'.
Largely due to our fun and friendly company culture our staff retention rate is probably the highest in the industry, which is where our extensive product knowledge comes in. We get out there and 'have a go' and actually count so many of our suppliers as friends. We try before you buy.
What We Do We organise real tailor made quality events with transparent pricing and super flexible terms.
"We won’t claim to be market leaders, we don’t need to be, we certainly don’t follow the crowd either. We simply march to the beat of our own drum with our customers’ needs setting the tempo. Which is exactly why we believe our customer service is unrivalled in our market" says Carol.
We understand just how precious time spent with friends is, and especially precious when that weekend happens to be one of the biggest and most memorable of their lives, it’s a big task. We have the knowledge, the experience and the passion to make sure this goes just how it should.
The FutureOver the years we have developed MyFreedom "a party organisers dream: invite your guests online, let them pay in instalments, manage your activities and download your tickets. The latest addition to this great tool is the ability to hide certain activities from the Special Person. We've always been an advocate of surprising the birthday girl (or stitching the stag up!)" says Kevin.
You can be guaranteed as we approach half a million customers, 250 activities and 50 locations that we will make planning your next event "effortless and tailor-made".

Organised a stag through Freedom back in late 2019/early 2020 which was rescheduled 4 times and finally happened last weekend. They were flexible, communicative and as helpful as they could be despite the circumstances - even having to accommodate supplier changes 2 days before the stag. Angela has been easy to deal with and came back to any questions very quickly. Thanks!

Booked and planned for 25 to go to Cardiff in August - could not of been as successful without the help of Karen,Emma and your team at Freedom!
Everything planned went ahead with no issues and honestly made my life allot easier, even when I needed help with changes or people changing they could not of made the process any easier for me.
Would not use anyone going forward when needing to plan a day or weekend away!
Cardiff was brilliant, considering lock down and all other complications that come with Covid - I can not thank the freedom enough for making it all happen.

I found the ladies at Freedom very helpful throughout the entire process.
It's not easy organising events like these, as the invited participants usually change things very late on! However, none of this bothered Freedom & they obliged without any complaints!
The weekend went very well & according to plan, which was much appreciated.
Moreover, Zack had a great time - which is what it's all about!
So did the rest of us!
Would gladly recommend Freedom to others - they are a pleasure to work with!

we booked dream boys through freedom for the first time. It was so easy and I got a call and email with easy explanation on the steps to complete the reservation with discount. Had few queries related to the show and all were answered quickly and clearly. Would definitely recommend using this website and will be booking again soon with them.

I booked a ABBA dance class with freedom for my friends hen do and it was so straight forward and well organised.
From booking to paying--everyone can pay direct to freedom which is fab.
I received a phone call on the morning so that I could contact them if I needed. The dance class was fab... Not my usual thing but I loved it and so did everyone else. Would definitely recommend. X

Booked a cocktail making event with Freedom for our company Christmas party and it was great. The table we had with all prepared with our cocktail making tools and we were taught how to make 3. It was very fun and the team were very accommodating to our needs. Thank you very much Freedom!
